2 1 Tartan 
Covenant College 
Lookout Mountain, GA 




.(Mt//e 




The goal of the Tartan is to seek to be 
an accurate representation of Cov- 
enant College as a whole over the 
year, covering everything from the 
basketball team to the philosophy 
club, and from the widows' ministry to 
the brass choir. Not only is the content 
of the book to be an accurate reflec- 
tion of the college, but so is the 
theme. And that is why we have cho- 
sen "In the Light." As trite as it may 
seem, it truly captures the college 
motto--"ln all Things, Chirst Pre-emi- 
nent." Just as Christ is to be pre-emi- 
nent in all that we do here at Cov- 
enant, so are all things to be done in 
the light of God's Word.

Its vast and diverse array of clubs and 
activities is certainly one of Covenant's 
unique traits. And the fact that the clubs 
are all initiated, funded, and run by stu- 
dents themselves insures that they are 
an accurate expression of the Covenant 
community itself.

Mark Slavosky and Sophia Long are all smiles 
now that they're done with their elass meetings 
for the day. Orientation is no longer as laid back 
as it once was, but now includes rigorous study- 
ing in the new Christian Mind course. 

Which way to Founders? Moving in on the first 
day of orientation can be a bit confusing, but 
with people like Ian Work on the job directing 
traffic, everything is sure to run smoothly. 




Every year freshman 
learn how to be ser- 
vants in the community 
through the amateur 
project. Rebekah Tuggy 
and John Goodman 
prepare some four-by- 
fours to help make a 
parking lot for a local 
Spanish mission.

Welcome 
Freshman! 




Once again, fresh- 
men and trans- 
ferred were wel- 
comed by a slew of 
returning students, 
including R.A.s 
and dorm staff, 
ready to whisk all 
of their belongings 
to rooms which the 
freshmen had 
never seen. After 
finding all of their stuff, meet- 
ing their roommates and set- 
tling into their rooms, the 
freshmen were ready to begin 
a rigorous week in which they 
were the first to experience the 
new Christian Mind class. 
Many of you will remember 
when freshmen orientation felt 
like camp, and some will re-

but none have ex- 
perienced what 
this year's fresh- 
men did. They ar- 
rived at Covenant, 
having already 
read The Idea of a 
Christian College 
by Arthur Holmes 
and having written exten- 
sively on the topic. Then, 
they spent most of their week 
in classes on the topic. The 
students did, as many students 
have in years past, spend one 
day serving the communty 
through Amateur Project.

"Diamond Dan " sings another great oldie at the 
Sock Hop. The music was enjoyed by people of 
all ages as alumni, faculty, and students all turned 
out for die fun evening. 

Dr. Hanun emphatically conducts the Madrigal 
singers during the concert. The concert serves as 
an exciting foretaste to the great music to come 
at the Madrigal dinners in December. 





Becca Holmes, Corrin 
Ranney, and Heather 
Rantal step out in their 
best poodle skirts for

busy week, including 
the start of mid-terms in 
many classes, students 
were glad for the 
chance to kick back on 
a Friday night.

A Time to 
Come Together 



Homecoming is al- 
ways a joyful time 
and it is made all the 
more special when 
friends, family, and 
alumni are able to 
come visit for the 
festivities. This year 
was no exception 
and one event, in 
fact, made it espe- 
cially memorable. 
This year marked Dr. John 
Hamm's 30th year teaching 
music at Covenant and after this 
spring he will retire. The home- 
coming concert, dedicated to 
Dr. Hamm, was packed out as 
all in attendance knew what a 
touching evening it would be. 
As an extra-special treat the 
chorale was joined by all cho- 



"It was so 
great to be 
able to see so

alumni come

ing . "

rale almuni present 
in the audience for 
a special encore to 
the concert. The 
stage was overflow- 
ing with students 
and alumni, all who 
had at one point 
been touched by 
Hamm" s gift of mu- 
sic to the college. 
The chorale concert 
was followed by another con- 
cert, a homecoming Sock Hop 
with music by Diamond Dan 
and the Cut Gems, an oldies 
music band made up of alumni. 
The band had played a reunion 
concert at homecoming two 
years ago and everyone was 
glad to hear them again. 





The chorale is joined by alumni chorale singers 
for a special joint encore in honor of Dr. Hamm. 

It was quite a magnificent sound and all those 
involved were able to sing their thanks to Dr. 
Hamm for all that he has done for music at Cov- 
enant. 

Jenny Brown and Eric Towers play along with 
the Brass Choir during the homecoming concert. 

The musicians are always grateful for the oppor- 
tunity to play for friends and family.

''Come on over here sweetie! " Jared Farquhar 
and Rachel Hackenberger are having a blast at 
the annual " girl-ask-guy " event. 

Chris Holton shows his friends how to really let 
loose and move with the music. Many students 
kicked off their shoes that night in true hillbilly 
style. 




Rebecca Hurley and a 
friend from a neighbor-

to the music. Everyone 
enjoyed the laid-back 
atmosphere and live 
music really set the

Pull Out Ihoee 
Cowboy &oote 



"The music 
was so much 

fun and it 
worked really 
well to set the 
atmosphere. " 



When you 
see couples every- 
where dressed in 
cowboy hats, boots 
and overalls you 
know that once again 
CAB has come 
through to put to- 
gether another great -Bailey Martz 
Kilter. Despite the 
difficulty with Kilter 
falling on the same 
night as Madrigal tickets sales, 
everything still ran smoothly. Kil- 
ter was moved from the Great 
Hall to a large yellow tent filled 
with hay, bluegrass music, candy 
apples, and dancin' out on the 
Chapel lawn. This enabled stu- 
dents to hold their position in the 
Madrigal line while still being 
able to attend the "Farmyard Fan- 




dango. " The great 
music was certainly 
one of the highlights 
of the evening. The 
band played country 
favorites as well as 
some of their own 
music. 

Kilter also in- 
cluded many fun fall 
activities such as 
pumpkin carving 
and bobbing for apples. Despite 
the somewhat chilly air outside, 
it was quite warm inside the tent 
with all of the great dancing and 
music. A few students rebelled a 
bit against the country theme by 
dressing out in their best leather 
and punk garb. It was all in good 
fun and they brought many a 
smile to those in attendance. 




Pigtails were quite the fashion that evening and 
Julie Swanson and Michelle Toner were no ex- 
ception. The country theme brought out some 
great western gear as students came in their best 
boots and cowboy hats. 

Jade Alger, Joey Redd, and Josh Wise get down 
with some crazy two-stepping. Now that there is 
no longer a dancing restriction, students were 
able to visit local country dance clubs in order to 
get in good practice for the evening.

Tha Importance 
of!3diigEarnagE 



"We live, I regret 
to say, in an age of 
surfaces," is a line 
that succinctly en- 
capsulates the 
theme of this 
year's fall play. 
The Drama Asso- 
ciation performed 
the Victorian com- 
edy of manners by 
Oscar Wilde, 
"The Importance of Being 
Earnest." The dedicated cast 
and crew presented four per- 
formances Preview Week- 
end, including a Saturday 
matinee by the commited un- 
derstudies. Brynne Osborn, 
who played Gwendolyn 
Fairfax, stated, "I wasn't ex- 
pecting much from 



"It is a terrible 

thing for a man 

to find that all 

his life he has 

been speaking 

nothing but the 

truth. " 

--Oscar Wilde 



Covenant's The- 
atre Program, and 
was very happy to 
find out that it 
greatly exceeded 
my expectations." 
The cast ably 
handled the witty 
repartee required 
by Wilde's 

epigrammatical 
style, much to the 
delight of the audience. The 
butlers glided their way 
through choreographed scene 
changes in front of the audi- 
ence. The crew kept the 
show running beautifully. 
All of this contributed to an- 
other successful theatrical un- 
dertaking by the Drama As- 
sociation.

The Brass Choir plays out a melodious tune to 
welcome the guests to the dinner. The warm 
sounds of brass music is always reminiscent of 
the holidays and it is no exception here. 

The harpsichord gives a very traditional sound 
to the music played at the Madrigal dinner. Jes- 
sica Hudson gladly lends her expertise to the en- 
joyment of all listening. 




A musician of many tal- 
ents, Dr. Steele plays 
three different recorder 
for some of the music 
during the dinner. Dr. 
Steele also conducted 
the Brass choir and 
thus was quite busy 
throughout the 

evening.

Christmas 



The banners 
are hung, the trees 
are lit; and it is clear 
that Christmas has 
come to Covenant 
and it's time for the 
annual Madrigal din- 
ners. The first week- 
end in December is 
always an exciting 
one as the music de- 
partment presents 
three consecutive nights of great 
music and great food all in the 
traditional Elizabethan style. 

The dinners seek to 
implement many aspects of the 
Elizabethan era, and the Great 
Hall provides the perfect atmo- 
sphere. Courses included pork, 
chicken, bread bowl soup, fruit 
and nuts and even flaming plum

pudding. The din- 
ners also offer many 
job opportunities for 
students needing to 
earn some Christmas 
money. Jobs can be 
found in the kitchen, 
checking coats, or 
even serving food as 
one of the sixteen 
wenches. 

The hard work 
of all who were involved was 
seen in the great success of the 
three evenings. The last evening 
of the dinner was truly made 
memorable by even the weather. 
As the guests were leaving, a 
light snow began to fall cover- 
ing Carter hall in a delicate white 
blanket. 





One of the favorite courses of the meal is always 
the bread bowl soup. Here, Sarah Ireland and 
David Illman enjoy the good food and magical 
atmosphere of the evening. 

"We wish you a merry Christmas..." The Madri- 
gal singers pour their hearts into the music while 
entertaining the guests. Months of hard practice 
really paid off.

The week- 
end is here and 
many options await 
students for how to 
use their blessed 
two-day respite. 
Chattanooga and 
the surrounding area 
offers many oppor- 
tunities. Being only 
two hours from At- 
lanta, students often 
enjoy spending a Saturday at 
Six Flags theme park. In Down- 
town Chattanooga one can find 
great restaurants, entertainment 
and of course, Coolidge Park. 
The park is only a year old and 
is quite a favorite of many stu- 
dents. It has a great water foun- 
tain, a carousel, and plenty of 
open field are for playing

theatre and Memo- 
rial Auditorium are 
also located down- 
town. Going to the 
symphony, opera, 
or contemporary 
concerts is a popu- 
lar way to spend a 
Friday night. 

The weekend is 
also a time to get 
some real work done. Perhaps 
the library isn't the most excit- 
ing place to be on a Saturday, 
but the benefits balance out in 
the end. Be it catching up on 
reading, finishing up an impor- 
tant paper, or focusing on SIP 
research, many students appre- 
ciate the weekend time to work 
on academic pursuits. 





Bethany LoPiccolo, Lael Rodriguez, and Becky 
Deprine are "all dressed up" in their silliest styles

Diving right into the weekend is John Patterson. 

He and his hallmates enjoy the hospitality of the 
Brocks, who lent their pool to the guys for the 
afternoon.

That 's quite a big bunch and not surprising ei-

ings. 

Kelly Clarkson and Michelle Higgins are just 
too silly for words as they play around one of the

Every 
March college stu- 
dents from around 
the U.S. to around 
the globe embark on 
great relaxing/excit- 
ing/thrill seeking ad- 
ventures- it must be 
spring break. How- 
ever, 59 Covenant 
students decided to 
do things a little dif- 
ferently this year. They partici- 
pated in the annual Break on 
Impact trips that send students 
across the U.S and to farther 
parts of the world to use their 
time off in the service of the 
Lord. While many students are 
busy working on their tans, 
these selfless students are 
spreading the gospel as well as

tries of full-time mis- 
sionaries working 
with Mission to the

students traveled to 
Daytona Beach, 
Florida, the Bowery 
Mission in New 
York City as well 
as international des- 
tinations such as 
Scotland, Uganda, Turkey and 
South Africa. This was the first 
year for the trips to Turkey and 
South Africa and many stu- 
dents hope that they will be in- 
cluded again in the future. The 
students in South Africa had the 
opportunity to learn puppet 
ministry with Agape Puppets 
ministry leader Linda Summer.

We Getting a 
Utt\e Warmer 



When the 
weather begins to 
get a little warmer 
and the students get 
just a little bit more 
restless, you know 
what must be right 



around the corner- 
spring break. While 
some students take 
the time to kick back 
and relax on a 
sunny beach, others know that 
it is the perfect time to finish up 
an important paper or to devote 
some serious time to working 
on one's SIP. Whatever, the 
case, one think is always true, 
spring break is your time to 
spend as you please along with 
a little bit of extra sleeping-in 
in the process. 



"/ love going 

to Florida in 

the

with such great 

friends. "

Many students 
head home for the 
break or wherever 
they find family. 
Karen Fink was 
able to visit her sis- 
ter Teresa in Peru 
while Krista Iverts 
went home to Colo- 
rado to help prepare 
for her sister' s wed- 
ding in the summer. 
A number of guys from Sub- 
urbs packed the tents along 
with them as they headed south 
to Florida to rough-it in the 
great outdoors on a camping 
trip. Spring break is definitely 
a great source of rejuvenation 
as students return much more 
refreshed and ready to tackle the 
rest of the semester. 







A large group of Covenant students hit the 
beaches for the break and this group took it all 
the way to the Bahamas to some of the best

This spring,

Proposal." The 
plays were pre- 
sented on April 1 9th 
and 20th, perfect 
timing for a much 
needed break from 
studying. The Chekhov plays 
were farces, with the basic 
theme being the battle of the 
sexes, often leaving the Cov-

laughter.

Covenant's annual 
Spring Banquet is 
always greatly an- 
ticipated and this 
year was no excep- 
tion. This year's 
banquet was held 
on the Southern 
Belle Riverboat which pro- 
vided great atmosphere, but a 
bit more limited space than in 
the past. As a result, CAB di- 
rector Iain Burguet was not sur- 
prised when tickets for the event 
sold out in the first day and a 
half. As mentioned, the 
riverboat did lend a great set- 
ting and with the warm evening

temperatures many 
students chose to re- 
treat to the upper 
open-air deck of the 
boat to enjoy the 
scene of the smooth 
water and moon- 
light. Rather than a 
full meal as has 
been the case in the 
past, the banquet 
featured a wide ar- 
ray of hors d'ouvres instead. 
This helped to save space for 
the dance floor that was con- 
tinually full throughout the 
night. All were in agreement 
that the evening was indeed a 
success and were sad to see the 
boat docking at the end of the 
night, "the time just flew by "

Due to a very packed 
Great Hall last year, 
this year's annual se- 
nior banquet was 
held downtown at 
The Chattanooga- 
Hamilton County 
Trade & Convention 
Center. For the sec- 
ond year in a row, the 
featured speaker at 
Senior Banquet was 
history professor Dr. Louis 
Voskuil. He has been teaching 
at Covenant since 1972 and will 
be retiring this year. His pres- 
ence will be greatly missed by the 
history students and by other stu- 
dents who had the chance to take 
his core class, Contemporary 
Global History. As only he could

speech was 

wonderful - the 

pinnacle of his 

career. "

Tuininga 



do, Dr. Voskuil made 
the graduates laugh 
even as he chal- 
lenged them about 
the futures that they 
have before him. In 
addition to Dr. 
Voskuil, graduates 
Mary Grace Rogers 
and Matt Novenson 
had the opportunity 
to address their 
classmates one last time. Over- 
all, Senior Banquet was a delight 
to all who attended. The night 
ended back at the college with 
the commencement concert, the 
President's reception, and much 
anticipation of the day that lay 
ahead.

'Graduation 



"God is good, 

all the time. All 

the time, God is 

good. " 



Graduation is truly 
and end and a begin- 
ning. It is an end to 
dorm life, ARA 
food, searching for 
textbooks in the -Krista 

Tuck Shoppe, late Deutschmann 

night runs to Krispy quoting David 

Kreme, and freezing Yleah 

to death in air-con- 
ditioned classrooms. 
But hopefully, 
graduation is the beginning of 
many things as well, namely a 
life of learning, of serving God 
and His church, and of looking 
at everything in life through the 
eyes of scripture. This year's 
graduation, held at UTC's 
McKenzie Arena, was a time 
for students to reminisce about 
their years spent at Covenant, as 



graduates Krista 
Deutschmann and 
Pete Herron spoke. 
It was also a time to 
be exhorted by this 
year's speaker, Joel 
Belz. Graduation 
was a time to cel- 
ebrate with family 
and friends. But 
most importantly, it 
was a time to testify 
to God's faithfulness through the 
good times and the bad times 
and to praise Him for what He 
has done in each student's life. 
Even at graduation, Covenant's 
motto still held true, "In all things, 
Christ preeminent." 





Someone is a bit excited about graduation. For 

Nate Early, as for many others, graduation is a 
much awaited and anticipated day. 

Students listen intently to the commencement 
addressby Joel Belz, editor of World Magazine 
and father of graduate Esther Belz.

By Kevin Courier 

His sovereignty and love are ever bound 
Together in a never breaking cord: 
A union, indissoluble and sound, 
Perfected by the blood that he outpoured. 
For God, his own dear Son he did not spare 
But gave him for a world cursed by the fall. 
How shall he then, when called upon in prayer, 
Not with him also freely give us all? 
We know that he who has in us begun 
A good work will perform it till the day 
Of Jesus Christ, his own begotten Son- 
The risen Lord who hears us when we pray. 
And oh, what consolation since I've found 
His sovereignty and love are ever bound.

We are the Bagpipe staff... 


and we are storytellers. 





The stories we tell affect this college and the people in it for good or ill. We must 
not underestimate the responsibility inherent in the act of reporting. Journalism, 
the relating of true stories, is never a value-neutral action. 

When we report fairly and give both sides of a story, that is not a neutral action. 
When we look deep and hard into issues facing this school, that is not a neutral 
action. When our writing opens readers' eyes to facts and opinions they hadn't 
seen or considered before, that is in no way a neutral action. These are positive 
actions; good deeds if you will. 

Telling stories with dedication to detail and care for people is difficult. But if we 
are willing to do it, we can help cause our brothers and sisters in Christ to 
glorify the Lord in their thoughts and in their actions. 

And though we'll never fulfill our role perfectly... it's fun to try.

Mesh did run suffer a

One of the distinguishing traits of Cov- 
enant College is the emphasis on indi- 
vidual hall community. The fact that many 
students stay on the same hall for three 
or even four years of their time at Cov- 
enant makes for the creating and keep- 
ing of long-standing traditions. This sec- 
tion of the book is the opportunity for 
each of those halls to record what sets it 
apart from the rest, adding to the diverse 
community of our school.

Night falls... the steady stream of students crossing our mountaintop 
campus has slowed to a halt, and the wind whistles across the 
empty chapel lawn as the student body settles in for another sleepy 
Friday night. The clock reads 12:00 a.m. But wait! Suddenly, the 
quiet, lonely lawn erupts into frenzied motion. With yelps and howls 
of anticipation, the First Belz boys run out into the fierce wind for 
their weekly game of Ultimate Frisbee. These men (and the women, 
brave but few, who play along with them) weave their complex 
game with brotherly abandon, for they know that their hall-mates 
represent the finest team of gentlemen on the mountain. First 
Belzians, past and present, enjoy a collective tradition of loyalty 
and all-around good naturedness unsurpassed in the Covenant com- 
munity. They each run this race of faith in their own way, but they 
run together, here they are, for better or for worse. They are the 
few, the proud... the men of First Belz. 

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of 
witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily 
ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set 
before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, 
who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despis- 
ing the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of 
God. -Hebrews 12:1-2

Stewart. Paul Hinkson, Ben Morrison, Will Lefler, Doug Sims, Josh Howell, Jon Polk, Geoff Glenister. Ben Parker, John 
Goodman, Brent Kilman, Josh Emrich, John Melton. Octavius Wright 



There are still those that confuse the men of Stonehenge to be the 
men of Second Belz. Ladies and Gentlemen, Second Belz is merely 
a mythical place where a certain professor named Dr. Davis used 
to serve as RA. The gentlemen of Stonehenge are a particularly 
interesting group of fellas this year. From RA Andy, of whom it is 
said hugs indiscriminately, to a certain Ecuadorian who often is 
clad in all black and usually brandishes at least one weapon. We 
also have amongst our crew a cook, a president, two Hollywood 
freaks, a misplaced Kentucky native who resembles a southern 
Californian, a basketball player, and a goalie from North Carolina 
that saved us from utter embarrassment in intramural indoor soc- 
cer. To add to that number we have a soccer fiend from Mexico, 
and even a young man whom calls Yemen home. Heck we even 
have a band on our hall. If one were to visit the hall, he would most 
likely hear loud music coming from an empty hall, celebrity jeop- 
ardy from SNL being quoted, and without doubt he would hear our 
favorite quote, "We all know the moon is not made of blue cheese, 
but if it were made out of barbeque spare ribs would you eat it 
then? I know I would, and I'd top it off with a nice cold bud..."

"Behold, how good and how pleasant il is for brethren to dwell 
together in unity!" ~ Psalm 133:1 

"For as we have many members in one body, but all the members 
do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one bod\ in 
Christ, and individually members of one another. Having then gifts 
differing according to the grace that is given to us. let us use them."

Blackwatch the year of the new millennium 

Where the men are as strong as titanium 

The caves we explored were dark and wet 

And the girls we liked we sought out and met 

Swimming at night in the presence of a Moon 

Spending time with the ladies, oh how they did swoon 

Bowling with Balcony it was real fun 

Getting a 38, oh man am I done 

Blackwatch point let me tell you was scary 

The boys believe me, they were hairy 

Chillin' with Gallery was always a good time 

But if they were too busy we had Jungle on the line 

Wake me up in ten minutes or I'll be late for class 

No boys and girls, Chris does not go to mass 

We missed our brothers Win, Dillow, and Mac 

Remember LT's advice and don't smoke crack 

We grew together in love and that ain't bad 

Here with my brothers is what makes me glad 

We're all friends here and that's no blarney 

Go to sleep its time to party.

As the RA and sole senior of Sutherland this year, I would like to thank, 
commend, encourage, and challenge the men of Sutherland. 

To all my hallmates, thank you for a great year. 

Thank you for Bill The Bowling Ball, for tennis ball wars on the hall, 
and for hall luge. You guys always made my life interesting and exciting. Thanks 
for Hall rugby and that trip to the hospital, for the 24 oz. burgers, for togas, and 
Swirlies. Thanks for all the bumps, bruises, and scrapes along the way. I couldn't 
have asked for a better group of guys to live with or a better hall to live on in my 
last year at Covenant. You guys challenged me like I've never been challenged 
before. 

As the youngest group of guys on Sutherland since its beginning three 
years ago, I see a great deal of potential for you, both on the hall and as you move 
off. I would like to encourage all of you to seriously consider what the next few 
years holds for you. Where will God put you in the near future and what does He 
have in store for you when Covenant is just a distant memory? 

I Peter 4 verse 8 says, "Above all, love each other deeply, because love 
covers over a multitude of sins." As brothers in Christ seeking to honor God in all 
that we do and in all our relationships, seek to thoughtfully encourage one another 
and hold each other accountable in your daily lives. Don't wait for others to reach 
out and minister to you, reach out and minister to those around you now! 

A special thank you goes out to my two roommates who strengthened 
me in immeasurable ways. Thank you Rodney and Ben for pushing me and 
requiring more of me than I sometimes wanted to give. You guys will never know 
how much you meant to me this year, I never would have made it with out both of 
you. 

Finally, on a closing note, I would like to quote my good friend Peter 
Gay who once said. "SUTHERLAND. . .We're not the only hall but we're the 
best!"

Once upon a time there was an island, in which twenty-one 
beautiful princesses were left to commune together through 
stressful studying, sleeping, and joyous laughing! The fair maiden. 
C.R. decided to become the faithful leader o\ the group as all of 
the girls were making it through their continual challenges. Each 
princess made herself a home but had to come to tribal meetings 
each weeks to make sine all were surviving. No one ever knew 
il R.Ci. was surviving in her LR lagoon. M.R found herself a 
coffee cave behind a streaming waterfall. B.D.. L.R., A.H., N.G. 
and A.H.#2 all made a habitat of the Mario caves in the 
Yoshiland section of the back of the island. B.M. and B.L. 
beautified their huts with colorful feathers and flowers they 
found along the islands many trails. C.W., H.G.. A.H.#3 and 
A.D. made a houseboat so that they could travel to the other 
islands (some near and some far) and capture boys to bring back 
to their Rowan treehouse. B.A. and H.R. played guitar and 
danced underneath stars while E.F. enjoyed running along the 
many forest trails. K.I. and B.C. had an amusement treehouse 
with slides, bridges, flips and swimming holes. A.L. and K.C. 
brought cheerful smiles to the princesses lives, but became social 
butterflies with the island inhabitants. The island life came to an 
end, but not before the twenty-one princesses came together for 
a line-dancing limbo feast on the open beach with twenty-one 
mystery dates picked especially for them! Best of all, no one was 
voted off the island and everyone lived happily ever after.

The girls of Rowan took a retreat to the New 
Dawn Farm. The retreat provided a time for the 
girls to get to know one another better and spend 
time in the beauty of creation. 



Halls 7 1 



During Christmas vacation John and Joe spent 
some time at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville. It 
was there that they met the Suburbs all time hero, 
a stone donkey. 

What better way for guys to bond than watching 
the Super Bowl? Suburbanites from all over came 
together to watch this year's big game.

Jack arrived early in the fall to realize that he lived on Suburbs. 
Here he could eat circus peanuts, warm marshmallows, and moist 
milk chocolate. It was a early morning when he realized, "Oh my 
gosh it's a mullet." His loving brother Noah said, "That is some 
repugnant crap." The Dictator of room 303, the great Botkinonius, 
wasn't pleased to see the amazing work of art on Jack's head. The 
Dictator only wanted the freshest mullet, and this one would not 
do. Jack was a good young man, he would ride his "Razor" scooter 
up and down the hall. What a time it was in Jack's life. He would 
ride with his hair just blowing in the wind, in the back that is, from 
speed of the scooter. It was then that the reading of C.S. Lewis 
and the enjoyable Bengal's game were rudely interrupted by the 
impact of a shattering door. Many of the fellows had to stop the 
rigorous fifty-cent tonk. This caused fits of rage among the Subur- 
banites. The door was not the same. As one hallmate put it, "Word," 
and others were amazed by the destruction. It was this occasion 
that changed all reality on the hall of the Dictator. With the growing 
mullet and busting of the lumber door the Dictator of 303 was deeply 
disturbed. But with the love of all Suburbians, the dictator was 
calmed from the traumatic incidences that had happened. All order 
was restored with just a loud "HWUH!" 

Ephesians 5:1-2 ~ "Be imitators of God therefore, as dearly loved 
children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave 
himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God."

The Ghetto is not just a hall, but a group of brothers who exemplify 
what Covenant College strives to achieve in relating as a commu- 
nity and a family. It is not about a tradition of pranks, but about a 
tradition of unique unity and closeness. It is a tradition of brothers 
seeking to love the Lord with all their hearts and love each other as 
themselves. The Ghetto is a ministry to those looking at the college, 
and a ministry to those not on the hall by demonstrating how broth- 
ers ought to relate: through confrontation, accountability, encour- 
agement, intimacy, loyalty, and honor. The Ghetto fights every year 
for its misunderstood reputation. It defends itself of exclusiveness, 
arrogance, and power; images that are created in the minds of 
those who haven't experienced the close unity of this brotherhood. 
It is the tough Christian guys this world is missing; those who stick 
together right or wrong, who stand fast and hold to their convic- 
tions in the face of opposition, who are willing to take chances and 
have the integrity to accept their mistakes, and who will endeavor 
to seek God's will and obey it at all costs, it is those men who make 
the Ghetto.

There is a hidden treasure in Carter of which few are aware. Up 
just one floor from a rowdy collection of infamous soccer 
players, third north is a rare jewel, an anchor in a sea of confu-

back, we the people o\' 3" 1 North are extremely proud of our 
heritage which has always been one of great diversity and 
character. We are proud to declare that this heritage has been 
preserved, and we find this 2()()()-2()()l school year to be no 
exception. From the top-o-the-stairs action o\' Bobbie and Laura 
all the way down to Katie and Suzanne, 3 rcl North has experi- 
enced a fabulous assortment o\' peeps. We have representatives 
from Philly, S. Carolina, Washington, Chicago, Iowa, even 
Huntsville, Alabama! We contribute basketball players, madrigal 
singers, drama queens, soccer stars, Lawrence hall video pro- 
tagonists. Gospel Choir members, and other random fun peeps to 
Covenant. We now invite you to sing along with our hall anthem, 
to the tune of O Canada. Thanks, thank you.

We were able to fall and bleed a lot 

Thinking we were hot, superstars we just were not

5" 1 South has been around for years but this year our beloved residence 
lite termors has been going through quite a gargle -we want to be 
different like Amy. We started off the year in a state of uncertaintv with 
only one V' South Playstation, yous the champs. Tug; eleven hot tamales 
-including the beautiful StephGranberry; and a random group of cows, 
definitely enhanced by the girls in the four-man (a.k.a. the SKAB's. i 
What an interesting soap opera! 'This has been a young and restless 
year" said Adrienne Christopher at an infamous gathering. We've had 
the accent of deciding what 5"' South is in our own voluptuous way 
(thanks to Chari'.) To us a hall is a place where people can be beasth 
and slam each other against the walls (like Mel)-this isn't easy and we 
are still working on showing each other our toe fungus. We've been 
working hard, like a day in Brooke's Paso Robles PE class, to accom- 
plish our goals through BOLD. French meetings and attentive christening 
sessions (lead by Katherine H.) We see this at work in our teeny-weenie 
lives, and we dramatically scream "woo hm!" with Emily S. and Alina. 
As we look back and see who has been placed on our hall, we see how 
"central" we all are in the life of Amy Claire Andothersonour Hall. This 
is not because we're chipper, like Cami, but because we're bouncy like 
the Heathers. Even Emily B. couldn't have cooked up something as 
great as our big booty, big booty, ohh yeah BIG BOOTY ! If we could 
put anything on a big Katherine C. "got milk?" billboard for the world to

reached. They are nestled back into a perfect spot, so that stu- 
dents can look out to the woods from their back windows. And 
since the apartments include a living room and a small kitchen, 
students have more have a homey feeling than they do in the dorms. 
All in all, they are the perfect housing choice for many Covenant 
students each year.

Philosophy 




Geschichte Happens! 

What's the point of philosophy anyway? Is it 
about winning arguments, studying the history of 
wrong ideas, debunking modernism and every- 
thing pagan? For some, perhaps. But real Cov- 
enant College philosphers know that it actually 
consists of hearing Dr. McLelland expound the 
platonic virtues of womanhood (i.e. Tucker), 
discerning one's "conceptual framework," listen- 
ing to Dr. Davis' wild college exploits, and 
traveling in a bus-full of philosophers to Wheaton 
every fall semester. And I guess it is also an 
exercise in critical thinking, a treasure-hunting for 
truth, a collecting of wisdom, and a sharpening of 
discernment. But mostly, it's Dr. McLelland and 
Dr. Davis, who make the harder parts— the late 
nights and mind-mincing classes, the terminology 
overload and wading through boring texts, the 
horridly-hard papers and torn-apart drafts- 
altogether worthwhile.

Much to the great joy of several Covenant stu- 
dents, a new faculty member was added to the 
numbers this last year, making a French and a 
German program possible. Mr. Tom Neiles is a 
master at both languages, and so far has proven to 
be an excellent teacher in his field. Elementary to 
Advanced French are now offered as well as 
Elementary and upper level German classes. 

For a few students, the new French classes have 
been a highlight to the Covenant experience. The 
Covenant community has a growing number of 
people who have spent time living and studying 
in Aix-en-Provence, a town in the South of 
France. Some have begun and others have 
continued their studies in the French language 
there in Aix. For a while, Covenant offered no 
opportunity to continue these studies, not even 
offering a French minor. 

But now, with a new professor and upper level 
classes, a minor is possible and a major program 
is in the works. The study of French literature, 
poetry, and grammar is availabe to all who are 
interested, and the instruction of Mr. Neiles lends 
a quality of excellence and expertise that chal- 
lenges and motivates.

Covenant's Music Department is very active, 
putting on many concerts throughout the year for 
special events such as homecoming, preview

Madrigals dinner, which features performances by 
the Madrigal singers, the Renaissance Consort, 
and the Brass Quintet. Other music groups at 
Covenant include the Chorale, Chamber Orches- 
tra, and Brass Choir. Private voice and instru- 
ment lessons are also offered to students. 

Covenant's Madrigal Singers and Chorale are led 
by Dr. John Hamm, who has been a professor at 
Covenant since 196 4 and will be retiring this 
year. Dr. Hamm' s presence will be greatly 
missed by the Music Department and also by 
anyone who has ever seen his choirs perform at 
Madrigals or on Chorale Tour, which occurs 
during Spring Break every year. He demands 
perfection from his students, and it shows in their 
performances. Dr. Hamm will indeed be missed

Economics 




The Economics department has been 
growing in leaps and bounds especially when one 
considers their new location as well. The 
Chalmers Center and Economic department, both 
led by Dr. Brian Fikkert, have moved from a 
small collection of offices on the third floor of 
Mills to the entire second floor of the new Rymer 
hall. The move has provided the much needed 
space for a fast growing program. 

Many students choose to participate in the 
economics department because of the great 
perspective it brings to the business world. Thus, 
even if one is not an economics major, it is often 
included as a minor along with a business major, 
or as one section of an IDS major. 

One of the most exciting events has been 
the planning for a new summer/fall study abroad 
program. The Economics department has been 
working hard with Daystar University in Kenya 
to plan a joint study abroad program. The pro- 
gram would feature ten weeks of classes at 
Daystar then followed by an microenterprise 
development internship. During this time the 
students would each be paired up with a local 
African student. The program, if successful, 
would run from late May to mid-December. "I am 
really excited about the opportunity to take part in 
such an incredible venture. It's not like any 
program I have seen before, ,, stated economics 
student Bethany LoPiccolo. The economics 
department is offering the program not just to 
Covenant students, but to any interested students 
outside of Covenant as well.

Education 




Learning (or remembering how) to play the 
recorder. Painting a Fresco. Jumping Rope. 
"Teaching" your professors, while they act like 
middle school kids. Dressing up like Native 
Americans and leading your class on the Trail of 
Tears. Eating candy provided by the professor 
while making a "dream box." Learning the hand 
motions to numerous children's songs. Scarf 
dancing. Acting like turtles with the parachute for 
a shell. Projects, projects, projects. Oh the joys 
of being an elementary education major. Many 
do choose to do just that. The Education depart- 
ment at Covenant is one of the largest depart- 
ments, containing six professors as well as many 
adjuncts. The purpose of the Teacher Education 
Program is to prepare competent teachers who 
practice their craft according to biblical precepts 
in any and every educational setting. To do this, 
students examine carefully in the light of God's 
Word various principles and practices proposed 
by both secular and Christian educators. Stu- 
dents who graduate from Covenant's Teacher 
Education Program are well prepared to teach in a 
variety of educational settings and to do so unto 
the glory of God.

Study Abroad 




From sea to shining sea, to shining sea, to Indian Oeean, to 
about five continents and twelve countries went Covenant 
students this year, studying abroad. Some of us went with 
school trips packaged neatly with professors and core 
classes, and others of us studied at local universities in 
places like Glasgow, Oxford, Jerusalem, Nairobi. China 
(Qinhuangdao), and Rome. It's a good way to fill the 
requirement for a cross-cultural experience; not only do 
you get to travel, but you also get to stay in a new place 
for longer than a week, learn in new ways, and receive 
credit. It's a hard opportunity to pass up. 

The opportunity that I didn't pass up was the trip to 
Honduras. 1 was one of ten Covenant students who lived 
in a small Honduran village for ten weeks. We brought 
three professors with us and lived in close quarters with a 
group of Americans who worked with local farmers and 
discipled missionaries. We learned in class how to respond 
to the culture we were experiencing: deforestation became 
real to us when we could look out the window of our 
classroom and see big rainforest mountains pockmarked 
with slash-and-burn fields. 

I was impressed by the sheer experience of it, the energy in 
the city streets and the novelty of a village soccer game on 
Saturday afternoon. I wanted to bring these home with me; 
I wanted to bottle up the smells and the textures. But the 
heart of the trip was the relationships we built. Living 
within fifty feet of twenty other people provoked inti- 
macy. Working alongside Honduran farmers taught 
compassion. Staying with village families for a few nights 
was meeting hospitality face to face. And knowing that I 
was a small part of a village, sharing in the lives of its 
members, made the trip worthwhile.

The smell of freshly brewed coffee and steaming 
hot chocolate and a warm cozy lounge are unfor- 
tunately the only benefits a majority of the stu- 
dents associate with the Psychology Department. 
However, although these are definitely reasons to 
visit the Psychology lounge, those who have 
taken Psychology classes know that these merely 
scratch the surface of the advantages gained from 
being involved in the Psychology Department. 
Dr. Wright and Dr. Rulon, the two Psychology 
professors here at Covenant hold classes that are 
intellectually challenging, yet fascinating and 
compelling. Furthermore, the labs that are re- 
quired with these classes are sometimes the most 
informative aspects of them, as they provide 
hands-on learning. The rat lab (complete with 
live rats and "Skinner" training boxes), psycho- 
logical testing materials (such as the WAIS 
intelligence test), as well as bio-feedback record- 
ing devices (to track physiological activity such as 
brain activity and eye movements) are a few of 
the resources that have been used just this year. 
These labs, as well as the thorough teaching 
provided during class (and of course the endless 
supply of coffee and M&Ms) foster knowledge in 
students that will be indispensable in the future to 
students majoring and minoring in Psychology.

Biblical Studies 




The Biblical Studies department at Covenant has 
impacted my life in more ways than I know. Within 
developing relationships both in and outside of 
school, I am reminded daily of the irreplaceable 
impact that Covenant has had. 

The Bible courses are in a league of their own with 
historical, theological, and personal emphasis. But it 
is the professors that create the ideal environment 
within the classroom. Though diverse in their 
teaching styles, their lives and lectures portray to 
their students a heart and life dedicated to Christ. 
This personal dedication on their part transforms the 
classroom into a haven provoking thought and 
conversation. The theology taught is grounded by 
years of study and selfless dedication of men who 
have devoted their lives to discovering the Truth. It is 
an honor to sit in these classes discovering how to 
truly live a life for God and how to effectively be a 
witness. 

The courses offered and required prepare the 
student for a life outside of Covenant, whether we 
go on to seminary or a masters program, to various 
working fields, or the mission field, or to raise a 
covenant family. We have a priceless treasure that 
we will pass on to our children and our children's 
children, thus continuing the line of men and women 
who in their unique ways have dedicated their lives 
to the Lord. We leave our college years equipped 
with what is necessary to be light in a world of 
darkness.

Dr. Lou Voskuil 

Professor of History (1972) 
Ph.D. and M.A., Loyola Univer- 
sity; A.B., Calvin College; B.D., 
Westminster Theological Semi- 
nary 



Respected by students and 
faculty alike for his years of 
service to Covenant College, 
Dr. Voskuil will be retiring 
from full time teaching. 



A student is so engrossed in his Russian history 
text that he can not put it down to walk from 
class to class. 



1 1 Academics 




Looking back at the gamut of the history program that I 
have been through at Covenant, 1 have found that there is a kind of 
history, with observable patterns, to being a history major. When 
one first enters the department, one quickly learns that Marsden is 
right, the culture box is the framework, to succeed one must be able 
to write book reviews, MLA is of the devil and Communists, and 
always staple papers turned in to Dr. Voskuil. With this newfound 
knowledge in hand, the history major steps confidently, and 
unsuspectingly, onto a roller coaster through time. 

As this diligent student plunges into Modern Middle 
East, Medieval Civilizations, and book reviews, she quickly 
becomes privy to an obscure fact: history majors read as much as 
English majors. This must be true because Dr. Voskuil covered 
Russian history from 300-1700 AD all before the midterm... plus a 
book review. 

As this history major's roller coaster reaches its highest 
point, she has hit what I call the Junior Year Hump. You can 
always tell when the bleary -eyed history student has reached this 
point because she has ten overdue books at the library (eight of 
which are from inter-library loan), and she has learned how to drink 
coffee that is indistinguishable from sludge. She also knows, at this 
point, that Dr. Morton hides peppermint patties in his filing 
cabinet, and she begins to wonder if he really is drinking only water 
in his Endangered Species cup. 

The ultimate shock a history major receives, however, is 
Historiography class. The pleasant, amiable student who was in 
CHOW just a year ago turns into a cynical hermit as everything she 
thought was true perishes into the death chasm of Historiography, 
along with wie et eigentlich gewesen. The history major learns that 
history is not about memorizing dates and facts, because there are 
no such things as facts, just perspectives. For instance, was the 
American Revolution really a revolution? 

At the brink of a history major's senior year, she is back 
to square one. The culture box has been dismantled. The Christian 
Science Monitor subscription has run out. . .twice. And the student 
believes that Dr. Morton really does have water in his mug, because 
that's the only bit of reality one can still cling to. Then the history 
major enters Dr. Green's Senior Seminar. . .otherwise known as 
Torture Seminar, SIP Boot Camp, or How to Become Personally 
Acquainted with Kate Turabian. This class was invented because 
Dr. Green wants to read top quality SIP's, Dr. Voskuil wants to 
read good SIP's, and Dr. Morton doesn't want "to read SIP's that 
are crap". This project culminates in doubling up with another 
history major pal in order to have use of a SIP carrel all year to 
write on some topic that gets glazed looks from other people when 
the student tries to explain what it is. 

I'm sure at the end of this major every student is glad 
that they can never again look at the world the same way; that they 
can write book reviews and beautiful bibliographies; that they know 
the formula for nationalist, indigenous revolutions; and that their 
brains are completely fried but they still want to go to graduate 
school. I certainly have no regrets — after all, what can one expect 
from people who write their dissertations on the civilization of the 
Gepids and migration patterns of ducks from Canada.

Down in the art barn we are making things, not just 
making things but doing things. We are building giant 
vegetables, cutting up magazines with exacto knives, 
drawing chairs, tearing up broken vers, making 
paintings too big to put anywhere, trying to under- 
stand color, learning the difference between shape 
and form (& why that does matter), learning to see 
value in abstraction and representation, trying to 
figure out if a painting is an object or a window (or 
neither), learning about the thosuands of years of art 
that preceeded us, & trying to find our place in that 
time line, & learning that art is much more than self 
expression, but mostly seeing the reason Christ 
spoke in metaphor so often: because subtlety is a 
beautiful thing.

As Christians are called to bring every 
area of life into submission to the Word 
of God, they are required to be stew- 
ards of everything that God has given 
them-including their bodies. And such 
stewarship is certainly motivated by the 
presence of competetive sports at Cov- 
enant College.

A Letter From 
the President 



It is a great privilege to congratulate the 
class of 2001 . When the college awards 
a degree, we award it saying, "With all 
the rights and privileges appertaining 
thereto. " You can be rightfully proud of 
your accomplishment. Statistics say that 
your education will enable you to earn 
more; be more effective in your commu- 
nity; and have greater opportunities for 
career choices and advancement. 

Such opportunities can have one of two 
effects. They may make you part of the 
new information age which is marked by 
a growing disparity between the rich and 
the poor (the educated and the unedu- 
cated), or your education may enable you 
to reach out to those who have not had 
similar opportunities, and provide help. 



If you are to be a member of a church that is relevant to the physical and spiritual needs 
of others, you must use your education to benefit others. 

This is the uniqueness of a Covenant education, of looking at the world through the lens 
of the bible. 

I pray we have served you well so that you can serve others, whether it be through 
business, education, medicine, government, science or the pastorate. May you go out 
into the world, humbly seeking to be of service, courageously standing for what is good 
and true and praiseworthy. 

Frank A. Brock 
President

A Note From 



the Editors 



The day has finally arrived - we are not 
only finished with the 2001 Tartan, but we are 
finished with our three-year career working on 
the Covenant yearbook staff. These last three 
years have brought us many memories, some 
good friendships, and some self-reflection about 
our own sanity. We have learned how to del- 
egate responsibility, and how to pick up the 
slack when someone's work does not get done. 
We have learned infinite patience, and how to 
get things accomplished yesterday. And we 
have learned that the money made is not the 
only reward, but a job well done is worth much 

To our staff, thank you for all the work 
you put into this. Thank you for putting up 
with our disorganization and procrastination anC| 
with us. Thank your for on-time work and late 
work, which taught us patience. Thank you forj 
the important part which you played in produc- 
ing this book. 

To Bethany, thank you for the fun times 
we have had working together these last three 
years. Thank you for your humor and your 
sarcasm. Thanks for working so faithfully and 

doing so many tasks. 

To Mike, thank you for your encouraging words, for being patient with us, and for always asking if you 

can do anything to help. Thank you for carefully and thoroughly proofreading everything. 

To the Covenant community, thank you to all of you who turned in pictures or stories. We appreciate 

your help. We hope that you enjoy this year's book, and are able to look back at it years from now with fond 

memories of the 2000-2001 school year. 

Finally, we sincerely hope that in all that we have done this year and in every page of this book we have 

represented Covenant College's motto "In all things, Christ pre-eminent." May we all continually walk in the 

light of His word and give Him the glory that is due His name.

The 2001 Tartan (volume 44) was published by 
Walsworth Publishing Company, located in Marceline, 
Missouri and represented by Bill Stoess. The book has 
216 pages (22 in color), and all pages use AWPC body 
and display fonts. All Scripture references are taken with 
permission from the Holy Bible, New King James Ver- 
sion (except for the exceptions). The entire book was 
laid out in Adobe Pagemaker 6.5 on Dell Dimension 
XPS R350's with Intel Pentium II processors. No, the 
theme is not supposed to be an attempt at integrating 
faith and learning; we just thought it looked cool in 
silver writing.

Like a Shepherd caring for his sheep, 
my God supplies for my every need. 
Pastures green, and quiet waters are 
beside me as I walk His way. He leads 
in paths of righteousness as I'm walking 
with my Lord each day. Psalm 23

He leadeth me, 
The quiet waters by.

For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our 




Lord Jesus Christ from whom the whole family in 
heayen and earth is named, that He would grant 
you, Ty, according to the riches of His glory, to be 
strengthened with might through His Spirit in the 
inner man, that Christ may dwell in your heart 
through faith: that you, Ty, being rooted and 
grounded in love, may be able to comprehend 



with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height - to know 
the love of Christ which passes knowledge: that you may be filled with all the 



fullness of God. 



We love you, Mem, Todd, and Tim

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel 
of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in 
the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of 
the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. 
He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which 
yields its fruit in season and whose leaft does not 
wither. Whatever he does prospers. Psalm 1:1-3 

We love you! Mom and Dad

Dear Monique, 



From breakfasts with Josh to the blessing of minuit 

From your first trip to Aix to your summer painting there 
We rejoice in your growth at Covenant. 

Keep asking Questions! 

You have such insight and humor inside. 

You have Buda's contagious laugh. 

What a great way God has given you to bless 

and delight people. 

We will never stop praying 

That the Joy of the Lord will be your strength, and 
That your love may abound more and more in knowledge 
and depth of insight. (Phil. 1:9-11) 

We love you, 

Mom, Dad, Josh, and Bekah
